Do you use your car every day? Every week?
If you donít need to use your car regularly, it can be cheaper to share and there are benefits for the environment too.
In February's blog post, read about three different solutions as described by members of Transition Cambridge and Cambridge Carbon Footprint.
Our three stories include:
We've teamed up with a team of 5 Cambridge University students as part of this project to help us broaden our reach and engage more people. We want to find out a bit more about you - our members - and what you think of our activities
Whether you are a seasoned member, have been to a few events, or get our newsletter but haven't actually met us yet, we would like to understand more about you and what you think we should be doing. You will also have a chance to win £20 in a prize draw on 17th March - open to everyone who gets our newsletter and complete a survey.
The current coordinator has moved further out of town, so we're looking for a new coordinator to help shape the garden over the next year or two.
There is a dedicated team of locals who do their best to keep everything looking nice. So far, we've focused on fruit trees and bushes, vegetables, and flowers, while maintaining a grassy area in the middle for picnics and bonfires. Where possible, we've tried to follow permaculture principles.
If you might be interested in taking this on, please contact Sarah for a chat.
One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future. Here are some suggestions from energy group members on what can be done to save energy.
The energy group meets monthly for discussions on energy related topics and everyone is invited. Also there is lots of advice on our web pages here.
As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.
However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.
We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
